Solidarity: Together We Rise as One
The word itself obliterates the fictional divide of "Us" vs. "Them" that has caused so much harm within communities. It has long connected nearly all of the people of the world in our shared struggle for a better life, justice & peace.
When our eyes and hearts are open, we know we live in a world full of abundance, not of artificial scarcity. We all want the same fundamental things, and there is plenty for all of the world's people to enjoy a life of dignity, free from want of the basic necessities of life.
Solidarity Wines embodies our shared humanity, and common aspirations. We reject the relentless politics of fear used to oppress. Instead, We invite you to celebrate the beauty and unity of who WE ARE. Some of the proceeds from sales will benefit organizations fighting on behalf of each cause.
All wines (excl Homeless) are Red Rhone blends. All are made only by us, in very small volumes, sourcing from small family vineyards, and with only 3 possible additions to grapes (see Winemaking). They are pure, vibrant, fruity & distinct. Out-of-the-Box: Non-AVA and non-vintage on label allows for maximum flexibility in crafting the most delicious winemaker blends we can each year.
